.. the summer and sun! Whilst other people and areas have been plagued with too much water from rivers, we are being drowned by rain. The summer, it seems, is simply not going to appear this year, and that after a longer than usual winter spell.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining since our situation is considerably better than that of many, many other people here in Germany. Once again there has been mass flooding and many people have lost much of what they own to water. In other parts of the world it has been more serious, at least those here can clean up their homes and move back in sometime in the near future. For those who have suffered at the mercy of the wind there is not such a bright future.
That is, though, the way of the world. We have to accept that nothing is stable, that nature cannot be dictated to and the bad, from our point of view, has to be taken alongside the good. And we can help those less fortunate than ourselves in so many ways. Who knows, perhaps one day those same people we are helping today will be asked to help us in our moment of need.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
